Affidavit of Truth
I found this video on YouTube and because I have great respect and appreciation for the sharing I'm helping him share the video here. It's likely the "Affidavit of Truth" provided here is not the same as the one he used but it's also good.
Affidavit of Truth
RE: Sovereign Rights
To any it may concern:
I am presenting you with this affidavit along with or without any other document, license, certificate, name and/or signature, or any document with personal information (hereafter simply ‘documents’), as a courtesy and for your personal use only in understanding the present situation/interaction, and in no way is meant to imply the offer or acceptance of any contract, or submission to any jurisdiction or authority, of any kind. You may be receiving this because you are a duly elected public servant, or are occupying a position created by an act of law or expediency.
This declaration is not a legal document. The statements made in this declaration are not a matter of law or legality. The statements made in this declaration exist outside law promulgated by government. My declaration relates to the Natural Law that binds all People and is the antecedent basis and justification for any other moral law. Just as ignorance of the law is no excuse, by this declaration, ignorance of my sovereignty, my rights, and my liberty, is no excuse.
I hereby declare:
I reject any and all previous applications and issuances of any and all licenses or permits for actions exercised by me of a personal, non-commercial nature. I hereby refuse to personally partake or engage in any scheme, program, plan, court, tribunal, proceedings or mandate requiring my coerced participation, in violation of my free-will; any claim, conscription, adhesion, restriction or duty under any previous license or permit, as herein stated, is null and void.
I am not asking for permission; I am not seeking approval; I am not petitioning for acknowledgement of my declaration. This will stand as my public proclamation in clarifying or correcting who I am, in relation to whatever government has presumed or deemed me to be; it is my peaceful overture to all of mankind as a reasonable, rational, and conscionable man; and it is my firm and true belief that absent my tacit or explicit consent, I have the right and power to conscript myself to, or remove myself from, any power that acts in any manner whatsoever, in which case I consider to be inconsistent with my conscience, reason, or morality. My declaration is absolute, non-negotiable, and the supreme Law to which I morally bind myself.
For years professionals within the criminal justice system have acted on the belief that traveling by motor vehicle was a privilege that was given to a citizen only after approval by their state government in the form of a permit or license to drive. In other words, the individual must be granted the privilege before his use of the state highways was considered legal. Legislators, police officers, and court officials are becoming aware that there are court decisions that disprove the belief that driving is a privilege and therefore requires government approval in the form of a license. Presented here are some of these cases:
CASE #1: "The use of the highway for the purpose of travel and transportation is not a mere privilege, but a common fundamental right of which the public and individuals cannot rightfully be deprived." Chicago Motor Coach v. Chicago, 169 NE 221.
CASE #2: "The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by carriage or by automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common law right which he has under the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Thompson v. Smith, 154 SE 579.
It could not be stated more directly or conclusively that we the people living among the states have a common law right to travel, without approval or restriction (license), and that this right is protected under the U.S Constitution.
CASE #3: "The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the Fifth Amendment." Kent v. Dulles, 357 US 116, 125.
CASE #4: "The right to travel is a well-established common right that does not owe its existence to the federal government. It is recognized by the courts as a natural right." Schactman v. Dulles 96 App DC 287, 225 F2d 938, at 941.
As hard as it is for those in law enforcement to believe, there is no room for speculation in these court decisions. American citizens do indeed have the un-a-lien-able right to use the roadways unrestricted in any manner as long as they are not damaging or violating property or rights of others. Government -- in requiring the people to obtain drivers licenses, and accepting vehicle inspections and DUI/DWI roadblocks without question -- is restricting, and therefore violating, the people's common law right to travel.
Therefore, let it be known:
The 'Sovereign American Traveler' honorably and passively, presenting this knowledge to you, is doing so graciously. I have a great deal of respect for the ‘Public Service’ to which you are committed, and understand how difficult it is to seek out and prosecute criminals. However, this Document is being presented at a ‘traffic stop’ or upon ‘demand’ of ‘Identification’ by any official/agent I feel may attempt/be attempting to abridge or usurp my common law rights, or ANY other rights, and therefore is a mandatory part of the Official Record of any ensuing action, and MUST be introduced as prima facie Discovery Evidence in said action.
It will be noted that willful suppression of ‘Evidence’ is a ‘Felony’. Any cause for action will result in a lawsuit under USC Title 18, Title 28, and Title 42, 1983.
This "NOTICE" has been submitted upon DEMAND of a ‘DRIVERS LICENSE,’ ‘Registration,’ ‘Proof of Insurance,’ or ANY other State issued Privilege, Permit or License (of which, NONE of these Statutes, this Sovereign American Traveler is Liable, or Contracted to).
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled: 'The unalienable "RIGHT" to travel is a part of the liberty of which the American Citizen cannot be deprived without due process of the law under the 5th Amendment' See: Kent v. Dulles, 357 U.S. 116, 125.
This Traveler does not willfully choose to Consent to your "Offer To Contract", nor to be ‘compelled’ To Incriminate himself by answering ANY questions and thereby Entering into ANY sort of Verbal Agreement, nor does this traveler consent to any searches or seizures of any type.
Unless you have a Warrant for this Sovereign American's Arrest or search of property, i.e.: a ‘Valid Sworn Claim of Liability’, or have seen this Sovereign American Commit a Felony, you have NO Probable Cause to detain him, as he has the "Right to Free Travel".
If you are Arresting this ‘Secured Party’ Sovereign American Without A Warrant, you must IMMEDIATELY take him before a Judicial Officer of competent jurisdiction, to determine whether the Arrest was lawful, or if there was ‘Probable Cause’ for the Arrest, or you will be held Personally Liable, and Acountable, for False Arrest(Kidnapping) and Sued in your Official Capacity. The arrest shall not be based upon hearsay, unless supported by a Warrant accompanied by a Bona Fide Affidavit. Said ‘Warrant’ and ‘Affidavit’ must be based upon first-hand knowledge of the Affiant who has a Claim against him, charging him with a Felony or other infamous crime. This Secured Party Sovereign American must be allowed the right to face his accuser.
Please, also be informed that under the Rules of the "Uniform Commercial Code", this First Class Sovereign American is NOT engaged in ANY COMMERCIAL Activity (STATUTORY LAW) where MOTOR VEHICLE Licensing is mandatory. This ‘First Class Sovereign American’ is a "Free-Born and Natural Sovereign American”, “riding a motor bike” or "traveling for pleasure in an Automobile", and this "Conveyance" form of "Locomotion", is "Private Property’’ for private use, only.
This ‘First Class Sovereign American’ is NOT "DRIVING OR OPERATING A Public Property 'MOTOR VEHICLE", therefore NOT Engaged in the 'Activity of Commerce’, and therefore NOT Liable, under the "MOTOR VEHICLE STATUTORY LAW", Or subject to your Jurisdiction.
If a ‘Public Official’ ‘Assumes Jurisdiction’ and insists in his/her pursuit in engaging a ‘Private Sovereign American' without a “Viable Sworn Claim of Liability”, ie: ‘Affidavit’ or a ‘Warrant’ , s/he is “trespassing” and is therefore no longer ‘immume to prosecution’, and will be ‘held personally accountable’, in his/her ‘Private Capacity’ for acting outside of his/her ‘Official Capacity’ and will therefore be ‘charged’ with a ‘Hostile Act of Official Aggression’, in an Article 3 Court.
(The Supreme Court has held that the courts are open twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred sixty five days a year.)
Where a Secured Party’ Sovereign American is detained, without a Warrant and without having committed a crime (traffic infractions are not crimes), the detention is a false arrest and false imprisonment.
Damages awarded; TREAEVANT v. CITY OF TAMPA, 241F2D.336 (11TH CIR.1984) Motorist illegally held for 23 minutes in a traffic charge was awarded $25,000 in damages. The above case sets the foundation for $75,000 dollars per hour, or $1,800,000 dollars per day.
“The privilege is not ordinarily dependent upon the nature of the proceeding in which the testimony is sought or is to be used. It applies alike to civil and criminal proceedings, wherever this might tend to subject to criminal responsibility on him who gives it. The privilege protects a mere witness as fully as it does one who is a party defendant." MC CARTHY v. ARNDSTEIN, 266 U.S. 34, 40, 45 S.CT. 16, 17, 69 L.ED. 158 (1924)
This document is not meant to serve as the source of, nor as a ‘complete’ list of the natural, spiritual rights granted to this and all men, but merely an assertion of the most obvious and pertinent to the present situation and under no circumstance is it to be used, cited or construed as justification for the limitation of this Sovereign American’s rights, nor the rights of any other.
Of this presentment take due Notice and heed, and govern yourself accordingly.
I hereunto set my hand and seal on this 19th day of May, 2011 and hereby certify all the statements made herein are true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
Make sure you study what you are doing before you try to use this, because if you use it but you don’t understand exactly what you are doing you can get yourself in a lot of trouble. So study well…and that means a lot more than just this doc!
Read through the entire document and replace anything in red with your information and then change the color to black. Sign it and date it and make sure you keep several copies in your vehicle at all times. I also carry another document (I have included it also) that is nearly 24 pages of case examples describing your ‘Right to Travel’.
The whole idea behind the document is to let it do the talking for you. After all it’s kind of hard to argue with a piece of paper. You have evidence to support your rights. What document can they produce that says they have the right to violate those rights? None…everyone just assumes. So the point is to say as little as reasonably possible and be polite and respectful…VERY IMPORTANT TO BE NICE. If you’re not nice to them, why should they be nice to you?? You still have to identify yourself if the are willing to do so also… and that is what this is for. It explains exactly who you are and that you know exactly what your rights are and now they know the exact consequences if they violate them and no one can say they didn’t know because you personally handed them the documentation.
Before you print this document make sure you change all the appropriate info, change the color back to black and delete this instruction box (everything in blue or green).
